These are some of the questions I had before joining Stampin Up so I hope they help you.
Who Can Buy From Me and Be In My Team
If you are a UK based demo, you can have anyone from UK, Austria, France, Germany and Netherlands as part of your team and or as customers.
How Much Does It Cost
£99 (€129) and you get to choose up to £130 (€175) worth of product from the Stampin Up inventory, you will also get a business pack including order forms, catalogues, and flyers which you can use if you want to make a business out of joining Stampin Up.
Quarterly Minimums & Quarters
To remain an active SU demonstrator you need to sell £270 catalogue price which is £225 net of discount each quarter, your first quarter will most likely be extended to six months to help you remain active.
The quarters are January-March, April-June, July-September, October-December.
What Happens If I Dont Meet My Minimums
When you first join you will probably be given extra time to try and help you achieve the target, I believe you get an extra quarter as a grace period, but if you cannot meet the target in this time you will just become an "inactive" demo and no longer be able to sell or buy with discounts.
You are not tied in to anything and you will not have to give your starter kit back or pay any extra money for it.
If you decide you want to rejoin you can join again with me immediately by buying a fresh starter kit. But if you want to join with another demonstrator you have to wait 90 days.
I Only Want To Buy Product For Myself For The Discount
That is perfectly fine, so long as you spend enough to meet your quarterly target you will remain an active demonstrator, the fact you don't demonstrate is irrelevant. If you don't meet the target you will become inactive.
Do My Own Purchases Count Towards My Quarterly Totals
Yes, Stampin Up do not mind who is buying, it can be you, a family member, friend, work colleague, neighbour (anyone)
They will just look at your total figures.
How Do I get Discount or Earn Commission
As an active demonstrator, you get 20% discount off the net price at the time you make your purchase through the dedicated demonstrator website. SU will do the calculations for you.
If you are selling to someone you receive the same 20% but as a commission rather than a discount this is what helps you to meet your quarterly targets and remain active.
